Wappen von Wangerooge/Arms (crest) of Wangerooge
Official blazon
German In Gold einen mit einem von Blau und Silber mehrfach geteilten, oben dornenförmigen Drillingsbalken hinterlegten roten Turm mit drei blauen Spitzenhauben, deren mittlere herausragt, belegt mit einem blauen Wappenschild, darin ein goldener, rot bewehrter, rechts gewendeter Löwe.

The arms were granted on June 20, 1975.

The tower is the so-called Westturm on the island. The tower was built in 1597 and since the 17th century used as a lighthouse and beacon. The waves symbolise that Wangerooge is an island, and thus is dependent on the sea. The small shield shows the lion of the Lords of Jever, as the island historically was part of the Jeverland area.
